'93 400sel help please

hello everyone - my 93 400SEL is chocking off the start and puttering and shaking until it gets to 10 or 15 mph - then all is well until I come to the next stop sign or red light - it stalled once and it barely got through the last intersection - I now have it parked in the lot at work and will be gathering tools later to look into it. I think it may be air or fuel filter or system related, however, interested in picking the forum's collective brain in case it's an easy fix. If you have this model and have a closer relationship with her than I, below is a list of other things you may be able to help me with.
1. Automatic door closer system not working
2. heater fan doesn't work - all fuses are good
3. AC not working
4. seat belt recoil very weak
5. door locking switch intermitent

Thanks in advance for any help!

I would check your caps and rotors, on door and trunk closing find the article by v12 uber alles on the 140 page, fan not working is probably the regulator, search and you will find.
